Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

A perfumed bouquet of ripe red cherries and berry fruits - hallmarks of Marlborough Pinot Noir.

Palate

On the palate the wine displays ripe fruit with complex savoury, subtle herb and spice elements. Soft, silky supple tannins provide structure and definition, yet also allow for the wine to show Pinot Noir fruit purity, enabling it to be consumed young.

Cellaring Potential

This wine can be enjoyed upon release and with careful cellaring will develop for a further five years.

Vineyard Description

Fruit is sourced from a number of vineyards in the Awatere and Wairau Valleys of Marlborough and a vast array of mesoclimates and clones. Vine manipulation when required is undertaken to ensure yields are tempered and vine structure and physiology are optimal so the vines have the best opportunity to develop strong dense fruit. The 2010 vintage was cooler than average, with regular rain up to late February, concluding with a long and warm, dry autumn. All of these factors contributed to excellent vine vitality, fruit flavour concentration and balance at harvest.
